Baseball legend Denny McLain on changes to the national pastime as pitchers throw fewer innings and batters hit more home runs and take exception to being hit by a pitch.

McLain was the toast of the game when he was 24 as American League Most Valuable Player in 1968, the year he won 31 games for the world champion Detroit Tigers. Two years later, his career took an abrupt change and he never returned to his prior greatness.

Now 73, McLain shares his thoughts about the rise and fall of Tiger Woods.
